Abstract
An overview of the IRTF's instrumentation software will be presented. We have developed an array data acquisition system based on a PC/AT using 96002 DSPs to clock and readout the array electronics. This PC, commonly known as the Instrument Control (IC) runs LynxOS, a real-time UNIX. Other components of the system include an X User's Interface which provides a friendly GUI interface to the IC, and View FITS (VF) which is the IRTF's quick look data viewer. These components execute remotely on a SUN workstation. The communications between each application is based on ethernet.
